Many students struggle with Mathematics from Algebra to Calculus, and even beyond. They never get to see the diversity and richness that Mathematics holds. Students often feel uninterested and unmotivated in Math courses- frequent questions/comments are "Why are we learning this?" and "This is so boring!"
The Mathematics taught in schools emphasizes repitition and computation. But the reality is that Mathematics is a truly unique field; it is both a science and an art. Doing Mathematics at high levels requires equal amounts of precision and creativity.
While Mathematics is a beautiful field, it remains inaccessible to the general public. For many people, Math remains a mystery- and oftentimes a source of anxiety. We created this Decal to give the chance to present and explain Mathematical material that is beautiful, understandable, and mind-expanding to students who are curious and want the chance to see what Math truly is.
Come see for yourself! And leave with thoughts of different sizes of infinities, logical paradoxes, different dimensions, and more! This course is Math like you've never seen it before.
There are no prerequisites to take this course. ALL students are welcome, of ALL majors.
For 1 unit students: your grade consists of attendance/participation and weekly typed responses to reading assignments. (Don't worry! They won't be too challenging).
For 2 unit students: your grade is the same as the 1 unit students' except it also includes weekly problem sets: 1-3 conceptual problems that are graded on effort. Office hours are available and encouraged!
